About the FAW

While the Football Association of Wales (FAW) is responsible for administering the rules and regulations of the sport while the FAW Trust is charged with football development. The Trust recently launched a strategy for the development of disability football focussing on five key areas:

To provide players with a disability the opportunities to participate within regular organised coaching and competition structures. The key aim being the development of a pan-disability football club in each local authority of Wales.
Development of Clubs & Competition Structures
To improve the standards of existing and new clubs through approved criteria and to develop new teams and competitions on a local, regional and national level.
Coaches & Volunteers
To recruit new coaches, develop existing coaches, officials and volunteers to support the organisation and structure of disability football in Wales.
Identification & Support of Talented Players
To raise standards of play to support the future success of potential national disability specific teams.
Profile & Media Awareness
To increase positive awareness of disability football in Wales.

County Football Associations

The game of football is controlled at local level by County Football Associations. Each regional association has a football development officer, who is responsible for implementing the strategy. This is delivered in partnership with the Disability Sport Wales officers.
